Perth Scuba Manta Club Dive Glyde Street 25Jun2014written by Steve Groen – Perth Scuba PADI Divemaster

Wednesday 25th June 2014 7pm. Leading into the dive, we could not have asked for a better winter’s day with no wind, no rain and, beautiful warm sun…Life is good!

We all met near Mosman’s restaurant at about 7pm and were greeted with mirror like water.  Four intrepid underwater explorers (Dave Brown, Gary Barnard, Dion Davies, Clive Marwood) and I accepted the challenge to find the Glide Street wreck as none of us had been to this dive site before.  So with the well-heeled punters sipping their Cardonay and eating their Lobster Ballantine’s in the distance, we silently slipped below the surface.

 Visibility was pretty good at about 3m and the water temp was a balmy 14 degrees. We were all impressed with the amount of marine life that we saw on the dive.  Lots and lots of Blue Swimmer crabs, Flathead, big squid, baby squid, prawns, anemones, a swarm of baby estuary cobbler, Leatherjackets and Starfish.

 But the most impressive thing about the dive was the amount of seahorses on the wreck, which sits at about 12m. There were hundreds of seahorses hanging off the ropes draped around the wreck, we might have to rename this dive site as “The Stables” in their honour.

Thanks for joining me on a lovely night river dive guys.

Cheers, Steve
